I do not think that any other topic has attracted more attention and been more widely discussed and debated upon than that of  bi-sexual and other variants of what the so-called normal human community term as immoral, illicit, and in many cases, illegal sexual orientation. Scores of deterrents among the human community have, not only sought to discredit these individuals, but on numerous occassions have dished out extremely harsh punishment to them.

Today's headliner (June 26, 2015) from the Huffington post just dropped into my mail box!

Supreme Court Legalizes Gay Marriage Nationwide

Supreme Court Legalizes Gay Marriage Nationwide

Today,I just want to invite your take on the matter. According to the article; 'The decision is a historic victory for gay rights activists who have fought for years in the lower court. Thirty-seven states and the District of Columbia already recognize marriage equality. The remaining 13 states ban these unions, even as public support has reached record levels nationwide.

The justices found that, under the 14th ammendment states must issue marriage licences to same-sex couples and recognize same sex-unions that have been performed in other states.

Is this a forward step in man's evolution or is it the opposite?  Would a recognition by those who slaughter each other in the name of God that these acts are selfish and self serving be a greater and better consensus than today's ruing?

Here is a take from Neale Donald Walsch's facebook post from His excerpt of his book: God's message to the world, You've got me all wrong:

We began this entire exploration with a cataloguing of the undeniable truth that our political system, our economic system, and all the other systems we have put it into place on this planet are not producing the outcomes for which they were designed. Worst of all, we noted, our spiritual system—which was supposed to solve all the rest of this—has actually added to our problems. 

And why is that last sentence true? Because of what we think we have to do in order to be “saved.” 

Don’t look now, but our history has shown that in our religious zeal, we’ve been killing each other trying to save each other. 
What’s enormously sad about this is that so many of us haven’t even thought that it’s enormously sad. 

We’ve thought, through all the centuries (up to and including yesterday), that we were doing God’s work.

For the 300 years of the Christian Crusades, during which people had their heads lopped off by the thousands if they refused to confess in Christ, people thought they were doing God’s work. 

For all the centuries that Muslims have sought to conquer and subdue entire countries, killing people right and left in order to create a caliphate, or Nation of Islam, people thought they were doing God’s work.

During all the fighting and killing between Protestants and Catholics in Ireland, during all the fighting and killing between Sunnis and Shiites in Iraq, people have thought they've been defending the faith and fighting for God.

In conflicts ranging from social protests and civil rights battles to all-out war (such as the ongoing battle between the mostly Buddhist Sinhalese majority and the Hindu Tamil in the Indian subcontinent, to cite yet one more example), people have thought they are fighting to protect their way of life and their beliefs.

Your take on Neale's piece?
